All The Prosperity

The prosperity gospel is nothing new.

Then I said, “Oh, Lord GOD, look! The prophets are telling them that you said, ‘You will not experience war or suffer famine. I will give you lasting peace and prosperity in this land.’ ”  –Jeremiah 14:13

But did God promise us prosperity while on earth?

Then the LORD said to me, “Those prophets are prophesying lies while claiming my authority! I did not send them. I did not commission them. I did not speak to them. They are prophesying to these people false visions, worthless predictions, and the delusions of their own mind. ”  –Jeremiah 14:14

People love the idea that being a Christian gives them health and wealth.  Some will preach that there will be no suffering once you are saved.  Of course we know this is not true but we can have joy through the suffering.

If we see prosperity preaching going back a few thousand years to Jeremiah, I am sure we will have it until Christ returns.
